The Archives of Maryland is pleased to announce the addition of phrase searching to our search engine. Although this is still being tested we felt it was important enough to announce immediately. Phrase searching can be employed by using quotes around the search terms. However, words which are not indexed, that is words smaller than three letters, can not be used in a phrase search. Example: a search for "loaf of bread" would be shortened to "loaf bread" and that would be the phrase searched.
The following error:
Error - 403
Failed to read headers returned by server.
Headers were invalid or incomplete.
Means that the search engine took too long to perform the search. You can re-submit the search but some searches will not execute due to the complexity of the search. We are working to correct this problem.
